I really wanted to like “Limitless”. It has a really good performance from Bradley Cooper, that shows that is going to be a great leading man. It is also directed by Neil Burger, whose “The Illusionist” I greatly admired.
Cooper plays Eddie, a writer who is leading a life of pure laziness it would seem. But things change when he is introduced to a drug that bestows him with super human abilities. But instead of exploring where these abilities will take him, the movie simply descends in to a pretty generic thriller.
“Limitless” is well acted and directed but it needs a better story for it’s subject matter.
